HOW THEY GOT THEIR NAMES
Cream: Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker considered themselves the “cream” of the crop of British musicians.

Elton John: Reginald Dwight changed his name by combining the first names of two band mates: singer John Baldry and saxophonist Elton Dean.

David Bowie: David Jones changed his last name to Bowie to avoid being mistaken for Davy Jones of the Monkees. He chose Bowie after the hunting knife he’d seen in American films.

The B52’s: Not named after a plane-“B52” is a southern term for bouffant hairdos, which the women of the band wore early in their career.
